The cones seemed to contain endless amounts of fiber and certainly looked like they could handle another set of placemats. But. I ran out of the “sherbert” color and while I toyed with adding another color to the warp, I really like the “sherbert” and “clay” together….so I ordered another cone of each. Plenty to finish the placemats and perhaps enough for a future project: curtains for our summer cottage. We just painted it with some really nice colors and now I envision huck lace curtains blowing in the breeze! While there are 4 windows in the room, I don’t have to make curtains for all. Just the street side windows and perhaps valences for the others. But that’s a project later.
While waiting for the yarn to arrive, I decided to use up some of my stash and I am doing a set of bookmarks! I haven’t decided pattern yet – something small and intricate.
This is what I love about weaving – planning projects and sometimes just going where whimsy takes me.
We are buying a Louet S10 double treadle this weekend – hurrah! My sister and I have accrued quite a bit in rental fees which all go toward the wheel. We are excited!
